Gowest Gold Ltd. (TSX-V:GWA) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to sell gold concentrate produced from its wholly-owned Bradshaw Gold Deposit which is part of the Timmins gold camp, to Shandong Humon Smelting of China.
In connection with entering into this agreement, Humon has advanced US$3.0 million to Gowest as a pre-payment for the planned delivery and sale of gold concentrate to be produced as part of Gowest’s ongoing Advanced Exploration – Bulk Sample program. Humon will be paid an arrangement fee in respect of the pre-payment. The funds have been advanced in support of Gowest’s ongoing development of Bradshaw into the next new gold mine in the Timmins gold camp.
“We are extremely pleased to receive the support of such a significant and well-established Chinese company in what is the beginning of a long-term, working relationship,” said Greg Romain, Gowest’s President and CEO. “Also, as a second source of financial support, this agreement provides further validation of what we have achieved to date as well as the potential of Gowest’s assets.”
Gowest expects to send its first concentrate shipment to Humon’s smelter in the second quarter of this year. The terms of this concentrate agreement provide that Gowest has until June 30, 2019, to repay the funds in the form of gold concentrate, cash or, at Gowest’s option, shares in the Company (subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.) The Company is confident that it is well positioned to meet this obligation through the delivery of gold concentrate from its bulk sample project at Bradshaw.
Humon is a publically-listed company on the Shenzen Stock Exchange with a market capitalization of US$1.6 billion. As one of the world’s largest smelting companies, Humon reports an annual production capacity of 40 tons of gold, 600 tons of silver, 150,000 tons of copper cathodes, 100,000 tons of refined lead, and 1,000,000 tons of sulfuric acid, as well as other metals and chemicals. Humon’s clients include many of the largest mining companies in the world.
